This is my newest acquisition; the Material Girl is kitted out purely for farming materials and defending herself. I had an NPC Anaconda on the ropes on her first trip out but he pipped me at the end. Blew me to bits. Lesson learned; check if it's an Anaconda before deciding on "fight or flight" LOL.
As an aside – info for the newbie which it took me AGES to find out… when you're engineering, the next level of modification becomes available BEFORE YOU COMPLETE THE CURRENT LEVEL (in many many cases). Watch out for this because it will help you to conserve valuable materials.
